Product Description

The second half of the first series of this BBC drama which tells the story of ambitious cook Louisa Leyton and her upper class lover and is set against the backdrop of Edwardian London. Rich man of the moment Marcus Carrington arrives at the hotel and charms everyone off their feet. Louisa trusts his financial acumen, confident that he will make their fortune, but troubled times are ahead when the hotel comes under investigation for immoral practices. Louisa is not a supporter of the suffragette movement until a chance encounter causes her to reconsider. Charlie has to smooth over relations between the hotel and the local Sailing Club, and the death of the King heralds a new era.

From Amazon.co.uk

From the golden age of Masterpiece Theatre comes this beloved 1976 British miniseries by the creators of Upstairs, Downstairs. Gemma Jones gives a performance for the ages in this rags-to-riches saga that charts the ascendancy of the indomitable Louisa Trotter, who rose from scullery maid to become "the finest cook in London" and Edwardian society's premier hostess. Inspired by the true story of Rosa Lewis, who held court at her renowned Cavendish Hotel, The Duchess of Duke Street is the video equivalent of a good read. Immerse yourself in this lavishly mounted BBC production that impeccably re-creates a bygone era at the turn of the century and captivates viewers with the tragedies and triumphs of Louisa's story, which includes an ill-fated affair with the Prince of Wales, an unhappy marriage, and struggles with bankruptcy and ill health. But Louisa, Cockney accent intact, prevails as the reigning mistress of Hotel Bentinck. --Donald Liebenson

The Duchess of Duke Street is excellent and very entertaining. It has everything, rags to riches, romance, tragedy and humour. If you like period drama, you will be glued to this. It is extremely witty, charming and brilliantly acted. Gemma Jones is superb as are the supporting cast with lots of cameos you will recognise. My friends never stop borrowing it and all have loved it. An absolute must see.

It is always a risk to go back to something you enjoyed. This series is so good. The Duchess of Duke Street has stood the test of time and is just as enjoyable, if not more so, than the first time around. I shall be purchasing the remainder of the series.

I was living abroad when this series was on TV so I completely missed the whole thing. I thought it was fantastic and the acting excellent all round. I have not ordered the 2nd in the series yet but intend to do so very soon. I can't wait!

I watched this series many years ago and liked it, but seeing it again, did not seem so interesting but well acted.

Just as I remember, a great series. Format of DVD is such that you cannot select individual episodes very easily
